Subject: Here Comes Wow !
Seriously ? Look at the setlist, and have a listen. The boys are just burning it up in the desert ! Yes it's 1992 and not '72, but there's such a Crazy, soulful, interplay in this one. A 5 star 1992 for what is usually an oft-maligned year. Here Comes Sunshine alone was worth the price of admission, but of course I also love the FOTD, and rollicking bounce through the rest of the first set. "Oh the hours I’ve spent inside the Coliseum, dodging lions and wastin’ time" !
The night before is no slouch, and this second set delivers as well. Listen to the very begining of Samson. It sounds like a dogs squeaky toy :) Great recording, gotta' love it ! HOT D>S but O my my China is my fav, it reminds me of the wise old sage who has only to say nothing, an still be heard



Thank you Archive ***** Keep the music Free ~

An old high school buddy treated me to this. Out in the parking lot we dosed up on blue unicorns and a couple of muscle relaxers (Mike swore it enhanced the experience). We went in and settled in the rolling grasses at the back of the ampitheater. When they rolled into Here Comes Sunshine, a subtle awed roar emanated from the front of the crowd. There was a thick haze of marijuana smoke hovering over the ocean of faithful, and as they exploded into a frenzy of whirling dance the reflections from their clothes seemed to infuse the smoke with rainbow coruscations. We had no idea what all the fuss was about at the time, but it was surely a sight to remember...

Yeah listening to this again is good, but also sad as its just nowhere near what they were capable of in the past. Still, it was a great set list, they summoned up what grace remained, and there's nothing like seeing these songs live. Even if I'd trade every show I saw for one good trip back to the 70's in their heyday.

I rate this very highly especially for '92. I've heard shows from '89 '90 and '91 that were worse.

Vince is mixed properly and doesn't overwhelm and Jerry, with demons at bay temporarily, plays his ass off---check out the Playin' Reprise, NFA and two solos in Brokedown! Space is also a mofo! Sounds like war was on their minds. China Doll in the ballad slot is a treat and Bobby plays a fabulous Throwing Stones and you don't hear me say that very often! He blows the doors off NFA. I love the Playin' Reprise too. Nice and long and exploratory. Finishing off the Playin' they began in Denver.

Jerry played very quietly during most of this year (my Shoreline shows were disappointing)but he's on top of it here. This is also the best Here Comes Sunshine in its revived form I that have ever heard. Of course it's the breakout.

This is a superb audience recording of the show. Kudos! Many mid 90's audience recordings are disappointing but this is top flight.

I like this even better than the Oakland Shakedown/Dark Star show that was to come a few days later. For 90's listeners this is not to be missed.
